ON1 has released the first major update to ON1 Photo RAW 2017. The application offers one of the fastest ways to cull photos making it easy to tag, rate, make color and tone adjustments, or add effects to photos. The non-destructive workflow utilises sidecar files to store edits and allows photographers the ability to edit and adjust photos locally, in the cloud, or on file servers. This also allows photographers to access their photos from multiple computers and/or allow colleagues to access and edit the same photos from where they left off. Version 2017.0.2 includes support for over a dozen new cameras - including the Olympus SH-2, E-M5 MKII and E-M1 MKII, the Pentax K5 II, the Nikon D5600, the Panasonic DMC-FZ2000, DMC-G2, DMC-G5, DMC-LX15 and DMC-TZ80, the Leica M10 and Leica TL, and the Canon EOS 500D -, improved raw processing results, updated support for Fujifilm camera files, better highlight recovery, and other performance tuning and bug fixes.

About ON1 Photo RAW 2017
ON1 Photo includes an all-new proprietary state-of-the-art raw processing engine and image-processing pipeline tuned for today’s sensors and graphics chips. Version 2017 provides a lightning fast photo browser along with powerful cataloging capabilities in one app without the restrictions other photo cataloging apps face. The app offers one of the fastest ways to cull photos making it easy to tag, rate, make color and tone adjustments, or add effects to photos. The non-destructive workflow utilizes sidecar files to store edits and allows photographers the ability to edit and adjust photos locally, in the cloud, or on file servers. This also allows photographers to access their photos from multiple computers and/or allow colleagues to access and edit the same photos from where they left off.
The instruction-based, non-destructive workflow in ON1 Photo 2017 surpasses other raw processors in other key ways. In addition to customary re-editable adjustments such as exposure, contrast, color, shadows and highlights, ON1 Photo offers non-destructive effects and portrait retouching. The ability to create layers, masks, and selectively apply filters and effects to raw photos (and other common file formats) in an all-in-one app, not multiple apps, separates it from other photo editors available today. ON1 Photo rounds out with the best all-inclusive effects app on the market. The simple to use, complex filters found in ON1 Effects—including B&W Conversions, Lens Blur, Skin Retouching, Dynamic Contrast, HDR, Color Grading, and many more—are all available in the non-destructive workflow allowing for endless possibilities when looking to create or recreate your style. You no longer need multiple apps or plug-ins for photo effects. ON1 Effects in ON1 Photo 2017 is all you need.
ON1 Photo works the way you want, and where you want. For photographers with established workflows, seamless integration as a plug-in for Adobe® Lightroom® and Photoshop® is built-in. It also works as a standalone host app for Google® Nik Collection and other photo editors; or as an extension to Apple® Photos. Common file formats—including JPEG, TIF, PSD, PSB, PND, and DNG—are supported and benefit from the speed and performance of the app.
ON1 Isn’t Done Yet
ON1 has adopted a new development process with ON1 Photo 2017. This will allow for continuous updates and new features approximately every 4-6 weeks. Several free updates to ON1 Photo are scheduled for the first half of 2017. These include: automatic lens correction, workspaces, compare mode, photo settings, versions, groups (stacks), camera profiles (film looks), updates for new cameras, and much more. Feedback from the ON1 community has been critical in helping prioritize product features. The Photo RAW Project is the best way for users to submit their ideas and feature requests for Photo RAW. Each submission is reviewed by ON1 and then voted on by the community. The more votes an idea gets, the higher likelihood it will get added into the app.
